A member asked:

What is a nuclear myocardial perfusion study?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Stress Test: That uses a radioactive tracer to evaluate blood flow in the coronary arteries. Images are taken at peak exercise and at rest . These images are able to compare blood flow to the heart in specific territories supplied by each coronary artery and any flow disparity would be consistent with a potential blockage in that artery.
